Robotic TotalKnee Replacement

Dr. Gilmer currently utilizes the MAKO Robotic Total Knee System at Renown South Meadows. This technology requires a CT scan which is ordered at the clinic visit when the decision is made for surgery. This allows for accurate planning to achieve the best fit of the implants for your anatomy. The robotic total knee arthroplasty system allows for very accurate cuts to be made to the bones and can assist in balancing the ligaments and soft tissue and may provide a more minimally invasive approach.
